Professional DNA Sample Collection
Court Admissible Tests require the sample collection kit be shipped and DNA samples collected by an unrelated 3rd party who has no interest in the test outcome. You have the option of using an unrelated 3rd party sample collector of your choice, or if you are located in the United States, the laboratory can schedule a Professional DNA Sample Collection for you. A Case Specialist will contact you before the DNA sample collection kit is shipped to make sure everything is in order.
NOTE: Please visit our UK website if you are looking for a Ministry of Justice accredited test.
Y-STR testing determines whether two males share the same paternal lineage. The Y-STR paternal lineage DNA test is based on the fact that the Y chromosome is passed from father to son relatively unchanged through many generations. Only males can undergo Y-STR testing because females do not possess a Y chromosome.
Y-STR paternal lineage testing determines whether or not Y-STR markers are or are not consistent with the conclusion that the tested males may be related through a common male ancestor. Y-STR analysis cannot distinguish a specific relationship between males who belong to the same paternal line. However, it can be useful for excluding males from an alleged biological relationship.
Court admissible DNA testing requires strict sample collection procedures and stringent documentation requirements.
